1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Ranakpur Temple, wandering the streets of Bundi and visiting the Hindu temples there with the guide.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure you are clear with your guide about what you are looking for. The guides are very helpful and very willing to work with you to give you a wonderful experience that expands your horizons on the country and it's culture, and it really helps you develop a deep appreciation for the country. Be vocal about what you're looking for, ask questions, and don't be afraid to try new things!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. As much as possible, the driver/tour representative would look to providing local guides when visiting monuments to help benefit local people. The same was done with recommendations for places to shop and places to eat. Additionally, getting to stay at the nature reserve also felt like a great opportunity to learn about conservation efforts in India and where assistance/support is needed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This is my fourth trip that I've found through responsible travel, and my first trip with our tour operator. It was a fantastic and rewarding experience which I will not soon forget. It really opened my eyes to a lot I didn't know about Indian culture and history, and the tour representative was patient to all questions, impassioned to teach about his culture, and flexible to changes and requests. If you're looking for kind people, beautiful monuments, gorgeous temples, and some of the best food you've ever had, I highly recommend this trip!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The wide variety of different experiences of place, people and food enjoyed within a relatively short period. The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Time spent agreeing a personal itinerary and checking the hotels booked is always well spent. Everyone wants something slightly different and a tour organiser will need advice to provide the best mix.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I hope so. Money spent in the local economy, particularly with smaller traders and guesthouses will always be beneficial.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent.

Thank you for your review. Your itinerary really did benefit the local traders. From the accommodations maintained by local villagers to those purchases of fresh items locally, shopping at the local vegetable market and the veg bought from small vegetable shop and the vegetables cooked for you in your of countryside accommodations where you stayed.
